we don't expect that move. the defense department, leon panetta likely to step down. chuck hagel has been the leading contender we're told but now is running into interference from groups, including chuck schumer, who is expressing concern and former republican senator is the right guy. this is playing out like the susan rice situation, the u.n. embassador who never got nominated but there was criticism to the president pulled it back. john kerry getting that nomination. there's frustration among the president's supporters that he's leaving names out and not moving ahead but the fiscal cliff negotiations are dominating his time. >> the fiscal cliff and diamond head in the background and waikiki beach. ed, safe trip home. >>> joining us, from u.s. news and world report, ken walsh. who is going to come to the rescue, anybody? >> looks like there's a road block at every critical juncture point here. it looks like now the ball's in the senate's court, to mix met force. the house failed to get to a vote with speaker boehner's plan. it looks like the best they can do, really, is some kind
as republicans want but clearly they have moved on that. and i also think there will be substantial defense cuts, if we want to make a dent in the deficit. i mean this is the choice that is going to be in front of us. if, we have to do four things if we want to reduce the deficit. we have to get more revenue, we have to cut domestic spending, we have to trim and reform the health care programs in particular of medicare and medicaid and we have to cut defense. if we do all four of those things we can make significant down payment getting deficit under control. if we do some of them, the numbers are not there enough to make as much progress as we want. this is where mark and i agree. over next six to nine months we could see substantial progress towards smart fiscal policy in the country if the two parties come together. heather: we'll see what happens. thank you both very much for joining us until monday night. thank you. >> merry christmas. happy new year.

really struggled the last six quarters -- especially on defense - is can they regain some momentum heading into the playoffs >> that is our main objective to play for the western conference it division championship this week. and also get a running start to the big championship. he was referring to the super bowl. one other piece of nfl news - pro bowl rosters announced today. and the niners are very well represented.not so for the raiders as you might expect. i'll have that story coming up in a little over an hour. >> vicki: we are looking forward to that game is going to be exciting. traffic on the bay bridge looking decent. headlights northbound -- commute direction 680 near the hwy. 24 interchange >> jacqueline: the rate the we have seen as largely coming to when and with some scattered showers over the santa cruz mountains. light rain continues and the rainfall has come to an end. to the east, south we will see clear conditions tomorrow. with cold temperatures, overnight. we would take a look at that and the chance of rainfall, coming up. >> vicki: now for today's market updat
bowling green. that's a team that ranks 7th in defense. san jose has had a hard time playing with other high ranked defense this is season. still experts are predicting they will get the win. the military bowl is set to kick off tomorrow at noon. >> let's go back out to tara for sal this morning and i know we have had minor problems, things are wet. how does it look to you? >> reporter: the rain has caused a couple of problems in the napa area. lots of fallen trees, we have trees blocking roadways up there. just be careful when you are out and about especially on the country roads, let's go over to the maps where we can show you where we have a fallen tree at bear creek road. this is sort of off the beaten path. also an accident. highway 24 westbound. also we will watch that for you. up next a look at the toll plaza. you can see traffic is slowing in to the city. we were sort of keeping our fingers crossed it would stay this way and it has. no metering lights. 280, those headlights on the bottom portion of the screen are northbound toward santa clara. traffic is looking good. >> good
is on its heels defenders of our insanely permissive gun laws in defensive crouch right now and it's the time you want to capitalize on that. it's probably the only time. you don't want to let those forces, any sense of complacency setback and you don't want to let the force that is are standing in the way of progress on this issue give them time to regroup and get them -- bolster their efforts. this is going to exist. it's not easy to get done. >> mika, you look at what happened, how it happened. we talked about this happening in shopping mallses in oregon and movie theaters in colorado, college campuses in virginia. of course finally a first grade class in connecticut. in a state that certainly has tougher gun laws than, say, a lot of other red states. in a community that seems like it should have been so shielded from this and a season that is supposed to be about peace. >> exactly. >> i think it underlined in so many ways why none of us, are none of us are shielded from this kind of violence unless we force our leaders to do something. >> well, and, again, i think i worry about
defense cuts on the one side and deep cuts to domestic programs on the other side forces everybody to the table. it clearly turned out that in the wake of the election we had, the pressures in their districts, the threat of being primaried especially on the republican side meant that folks aren't willing to move as quickly and put themselves in this bind. i've talked to a senator just earlier today saying that the real fear is psychological impact. go over the cliff, deal with some of the technical problems of some of the tax issues, but still be left with a lack of confidence on the part of consumers and business and investors and really the threat that they worry about. >> can i make another point. michael is saying from a nonpartisan perspective this kind of threat in the governing process isn't working. and i'm saying from a more ideological perspective, it's bad and irresponsible to take people that make them a bargaining chip. i think the white house should say we take this sequestration cuts off the -- >> no cuts at snaul. >> but we agree there's things to be done. i have to
and self-defense classes during holiday break. here is alex cabraro. >> reporter: steven pratt has never had a gun permit, lately he's wanted one. >> with the recent tragedy in connecticut, i realized it's time for me to act on that. >> reporter: pratt is a third grade teacher. his students are about the same age as those who died in connecticut. >> i just worried a little bit, what would i do as a teacher? how would i protect myself if fired upon? >> reporter: is not the only one asking those questions. hundreds of teachers, administrators, janitors, anyone involved in a school came to the maverick center in west valley. this class called the mass violence response training class was designed to teach them to fight back. >> i think it's important to have protection. >> reporter: the class wasn't just about guns and protecting yourself with a gun. but guns were a big part of it. >> people are tired of being victims. >> reporter: clark is a well-known shooting instructor in utah. he helped teach the class providing the basic fore iics fo do and how do it. >> we're not going to get the gun
the makings of yet another shootout. you just don't know how good the defenses can be. when you talk about the numbers and weapons that we discussed and the guys talked about this huge game coming up on sunday. juror i told the guys, don't play this up so big that you can't see that you got to make sure you approach it the same exact way you have the past six weeks and know that it is for all the marbles, whatever you want to say but don't go out and may scared. you have to play like you have nothing to lose. >> football is an emotional game. you are at home. you are playing for everything. but if you lose it, you can lose control of the game really fast. pep alts and turnovers are things that come as a result of a lack of focus. -- penalties and turn overs. >> you have to be controlled but you need to play with an edge. when the clock strikes zero, you are going to the playoffs or going home for the long off soap. >> can you play with that edge and not yet lose your cool if you will in this emotional cool. >> people worry about you on the show. >> i'm good until you show up. then it's ju
, but by and large entitlements are left alone which has been to be dealt with at some point, big cuts in defense. we haven't seen that in 30 years. we go back to paying the taxes when bill clinton was president of the united states and the economy was a hell of a lot better when bill clinton was president than it is today. i don't think the fiscal cliff is all that bad a deal looking at it from the point of view of a progressive democrat. it's not perfect, but i worry about ceos that are funding fix the debt because, you know, they got us into this in the first place. i don't have a lot of faith in their ability to get us out. one more thing, you know, if there's a deal between the democrats and the republicans, i guarantee you the democrats and the republicans will make out just fine. i'm not so sure about the american people. >> governor rendell -- thanks governor dean for that one. i want to pick up on something you said about kicking the can down the roads. one of the things that had been an issue had been taking the debt ceiling conversation off the table. republicans want to keep it as a point
think that is the fine type of leadership -- yes, in this area of the proper defense of our consulates overseas, the proper thing was done. in other areas, not for political purposes, but for making sure we get the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird h
it was coming. doug is right, house republicans did act. they acted to stop the defense cuts and stop the tax hikes. what happened since then, senate democrats have done nothing with it. i think president obama, senator reid, they have to bear some responsibility they haven't moved any of this house-passed legislation. it is time for president obama and senator reid to act. >> one thing an amos piece. senate passed a bill which protected folks making 250 and less and small businesses from a tax increase. that is collecting dust in the house right now. jon: well, doug, let me throw it back at you, this is the same senate that hasn't passed a budget in three years, even the president's budget got no votes in the senate the last time around. how can they lay all of the blame at the feet of the house of representatives? >> i would say, look, i think everyone shares in the blame what is going on here and but i do think that what you're seeing on the house is this, a almost a reluctance to take yes for an answer the president has put forward a plan which results in $2 trillion in total spending cut
. after they won the supreme court case identifying a right to own a gun in your home for self-defense, the question i think for them was well, what do we do now. do you fold up a $240 million a year organization? does wayne lapierre give up his $1.4 million a year salary? no. they have methodically gone from state legislature to state legislature chipping away at modest restrictions that most nra members support. so he has a huge problem, i think, based on that bizarre press conference, with the membership of the nra which is quite reasonable. >> ari, i want to get your reaction to the press conference the other day but as an attorney, to sort of talk about that turn because it is sort of a unique kind of feature of the idea of the constitution that you have this unique, you know, the individual right to bear arms. because historically, there's been lots of gun legislation. i was reading about sort of even the battle at the ok corral and these other fights in the wyatt earp days when you had to check your gun in at the sheriff's office. that was perfectly reasonable and it was sort of
time. and the to sequester these mandatory spending cuts to defense, there's not enough time to deal with those. that is a concern to many republicans, actually many democrats as well. that could be a final hiccup here even as we get closer on the tax question. >> so how are we supposed to do is then, christina? if we couldn't get it done at $1 million. speaker boehner couldn't get that done. is it going to look like a bipartisan agreement of over in the senate that's going to go to the house, may pass with bipartisan support and then that just makes speaker boehner look even worse than he has the past week or so? >> getting a bipartisan deal, i mean that's really an interesting question if it ends up making somebody look worse. what's interesting to me about the calculus in all of this, this little bit of political kabuki theater. in some case that's actually what it is. polls are showing that the american people are actually following this debate very closely. it's one that has been warned about for a long time. the automatic sequestration cuts have basically been warned about. we'
including frank gore and joe staley, on the defense patrick willis, six years in the nfl, six selections,. eight others were also named as alternates. >>> san jose state is hours playing in a big bowl game. the spartans will face bowling green in the military bowl. the teams have had five weeks to get ready for this game and if san jose state win itself will have it's first 11 win season since 1940. >> can't wait to see that one. air force one is about to land after an overnight trip from hawaii. the president is cutting his vacation short to deal with the crisis. >> and a former president in the hospital. what his doctors are saying this morning. [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow, you guys have it easy. i wish i had u-verse when i was your age. in my day, we didn't have these fancy wireless receivers. blah blah blah. if i had a sleepover, i couldn't just move the tv into the playroom. no. we had to watch movies in the den because that's where the tv outlet was. and if dad was snoring on the couch, we muscled through it. is she for real? your generation has it made.

in big d, and i remember sitting in the press box watching the cowboys' defense closely and thinking to themselves, they have no idea how to stop robert griffin iii. none. he went nuts. quarterback rating of 131.8. 19 of 27. 304yards. four touchdowns. four. now, the other guy on the other side, this is one of them here, he's going to roll into the end zone, redskins won 38-31. only their second win in a row of this current six-game winning streak. they were 4-6 at the time. greasing the wheels at that point. now, like you say, how did we get to here? the guys talk about yesterday not letting the game get too much of sunday's game, not letting the emotions take over. >> i told the guys, you know, don't play this up so big, that you can't seize it. like i was telling you guys, you got to make sure you approach it the same exact way that you have the past six weeks, and know that, you know, it's for all the marbles, whatever you want to say. but don't go out and play scared. >> football is an emotional game. you're at home, playing for everything. but if you lose it, you can lose contro
avoid tax increases for everyone as well as massive spending cuts in defense and other areas. if a deal can be reached, the senate would vote on it first. then it would head to the house. the latest the house would vote on a possible deal is january 2nd. the final full day before a new congress takes office. >>> the house is set to reconvene tomorrow night. speaker john boehner told fellow representatives there will be session at 6:30 tomorrow night. he said he hopes to have a senate bill in his hand by then so they can vote on it. and be sure to tune in tomorrow morning for "meet the press." moderator david gregory has an exclusive interview with president obama. they'll discuss the impending cliff as well as other key issues facing the country. you can see "meet the press" here on nbc 4. that's tomorrow at 10:30. >>> and the time right now is 10:05. coming up, some ski slopes benefitting from this morning's winter weather. >>> plus, the new developments we could see today that could help bring that long nhl lockout to an end. >>> and if you are about to hit the road, watch that speed.
who don't want to do anything as far as defense in the schools and i think we could regret that if there were another incident that might have been prevented. >> surely a big debate about that. under the plan each public school would designate one person to keep the gun in a secure, locked location. it would be a voluntary program. state law would need to be amended before that plan can move forward. >>> customers at starbucks this morning reacting to ceo howard schultz's plan telling workers in the washington, d.c., stores to write the words "come together" on coffee cups. >> "come together." a nice beatles quote there. i think it's kind of a cool idea, but i -- you know, i don't know that the politicians really care. >> i think it means that people are basically tired that congress can't come to a compromise or actually agree on anything, if we're talking about something as huge as sdp that's going to affect taxes that affect everybody else in the united states, it's indicative of the kind of deadlock that we're at in the system right now. >> it's all about the fiscal cli
